Now that I have been using this motor for almost two months & many fliest , an update. The motor continues to run strong. Having reversed the prop shat so that it is the same as the pictured has worked without issue. Have continued to use a GWS orange 8/6 prop, 3 cell 20C Turnigy 3000ma battery , & 30amp ESC. One problem has occurred in regards to the 3 motor wires. It appears that the insulation on these wires is NOT bonded to the wire core. As a matter of fact very loose around the wire. I happened to notice on a pre flight inspection that the insulation on one of the wires has slipped well forward leaving exposed wire out passed the metal case by about 3/8" ( 6-7 mm ) . Had this wire touched the case a short could have occurred. I was able to slide the insulation back into the opening on the case. I then took some clear silicone & a tooth pick & worked it into the case opening. When this set up all was secure. I highly suggest doing this to your wires before the insulation slips. Had this not have happened I would have given 5 stars. Still a good strong running motor.This might be the best motor I have.
I've used it on many planes like the FT Simple Cub, two FT mustangs etc.
I am ordering a second one for a twin engine so i hope i wasn't just lucky.Great power for foamboard planes, we are using this motor with a plush 18a ESC, APC 8x6e prop on 3S. The bloody wonders are pulling about 14A static at 140 watts WOT and weigh about 1 pound with this setup and 1500 mah battery. Combat/racing fights at full throttle last 5 mins.BEWARE! When Hobbyking has a problem with an order their customer service sucks BIG TIME. I have had about 4 orders that didn't ship for days because they were out of stock on an item that I ordered and their online ordering system said it was in stock. Then it takes days for them to resolve the issue. If you are in a hurry for a big order, go elsewhere.Probably the nicest quality motor I've had from HK: no slop, good thick shaft and big bearings. The quality of the machining is excellent and the motor appears to be well balanced and smooth. Overall a very nice wee motor.A perfectly good motor for the price.Great motor, tons of power. I am using it as a replacement on my Pz P-51 gunfighter and i get full vertical with a 9-5 Prop.I got this outrunner to power by foam board Spitfire and I had no real expectations apart from it being the proper KV and supplying the proper thrust (according to the data sheet).
The engine arrived properly packaged in good order and looked properly brand new. All parts were included as specified and some quick bench testing showed that it worked well and consumed the proper amount of electricity when loaded.
The only thing that has let me down was that the soldering of the engine leads was done in a way that left a really sharp change in flexibility. As in, the tinning that leads up to the bullet connectors is very thick creating a very easy to bend and break point in the lead.
One of my engine leads got twisted and broke because of this, resulting in a non working engine. This is easily fixed with some soldering but it was not expected when the rest looked so good. My suggestion would be to not tin that much and use a longer shrink tube that covers the edge of the tinning.Using this motor to power up a Cessna 182 Deluxe with a 9x6 propeller. It almost climbs vertically!TIMO MOTOR RECOMENTO!!!!!!
